is exported all around the world. they want the u.s. economy to be stronger as quickly as possible, because it means there will be able to continue to export. as much as they're trying to move from an export driven economy to a more domestic consumption based economy, they will still rely heavily on exports. the more americans are working, the more money they have in their pockets, the more they will be shopping in stores, and so much of what they buy is made from many other countries, including china. the healthier the u.s. economy is, the more that china will export. that means jobs for the chinese people. >> when you talk to leaders, how much are they actually were it about united states? -- worried about united states? >> i think united states is incredibly important to china, and recognize that. not only in very practical ways, but in another way, more psychological. there is a 150 year history were china has been trying to check itself up in big shin itself upr status. there is this lingering psychological mindset of china being victimized by the great powers. it is kind of a struggle
legislation he's sponsoring which will allow more highly skilled immigrants the u.s. that's live at 7:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. >> i think riders institute is something that's important within the culture. we are a culture of words of voices. words are key to our imagination, our capacity to envision things. we ourselves are not completely tied to print on the page of writing but i think that there is no other art form so readily accessible other than perhaps film. but there is something in literature that cap chures the hunal spirit. >> this weekend join book tv as we look tpwhind scenes at the literary life of new york's capital city albany. >> senators from new york and new jersey say hurricane sandy caused $5 billion worth of damage to rail subway and port infrastructure in their state. they testified on surface transportation yesterday. >> i call this hearing to order. thank you for joining us, mr. secretary. i asked you to testify today because i'm deeply concerned about the recent report that the f.h.a. could potentially need taxpayer support for the first time in its 78-year histo
of the shares. the u.s. is on the head with an auction model based on the elegant simplicity of one course concept, marcus, not the whims of regulator specific to ensure productive and innovative use. i know from some of your testimony you have pointed out, especially some new commissioners the success the sec has had over the years that doing good auctions. however, we've learned overly prescriptive rules can lead to less than successful auction results. the fcc so uncovered the d block auction to lower the megahertz licensed for the prime brought in spectrum failed to garner more than a few token bids and those who are well below the true value of that very important spectrum. the fcc must avoid overly prescriptive option was the land market mechanisms and have a proven record of success. remember, the revenue generated in part to pay for the middle-class tax cut and extension of unemployment benefits will be used to help pay for the interoperable public safety broadband network and to fund the next jan 9/11 service and invest in public safety research and development. they failed to rai
facet of this investigation. >> this is one of the worst school shootings in u.s. history. >> they had their entire lives ahead of them. birthdays, graduations, weddings. kids of their own. we are praying for them. that the love they felt for those they lost endures not only just in their memories, but in ours. >> reporter: good evening, i'm chris jansing. and in the volunteer fire department behind me there was supposed to be a christmas tree sale tonight. instead, they're staging an investigation because 20 children and six adults were killed in a horrific act of violence here in newtown, connecticut. twenty-year-old adam lanza reportedly killed his mother at their home, a kindergarten teacher, where they both lived. then he drove to the sandy hook elementary school where she taught, and opened fire on the students and staff. >> i couldn't even process it here, like a shooting in newtown. and it was hours later when they started to come out with the numbers. and it just didn't seem real. it just seemed like, this is wrong. a lot of misinformation, and a lot of information given. you
are dealing with the u.s. and federal government, you get everything that comes along with that. the paperwork is just awful, if you start with the mayor, they can make things happen. as soon as you get to the federal government. this has been going on for a long time. >> i just want to make it perfectly clear, it is a lot better than 9/11. we were working with 12,000 businesses directly impacted by that disaster in new york. today is a cakewalk in all honesty. i can't think of a situation where we did not help every small business at that point of perfection. there is going to be a lot of businesses needing help and we are struggling with that. we are trying to come up with the resources. the request for the 60 billion, it does include the ability to extend this effort. it will not be a one-year or two-year situation. they probably won't come back for five years. >> i will conclude with this. i agree that this recovery is not going to take place unless the small businesses recover. congress is not going to help small business in one regard, but small businesses and individuals will keep their
just add something u.s. senator whitehouse said. we hauled out photographs of the national wildlife refuge. we are looking to the west here. it used to be a freshwater wetland refuge. now it's largely the bottom part is the delaware bay. there is a road in the top corner that comes west to east to delaware bay. that road is under water quite a bit of the time now. but he used to be you could drive towards the delaware bay and as you've got to the bank, there's a parking lot where people can park cars or trucks or whatever. there's no parking lot. he couldn't stand they are to the east of the parking lot used to be, to the right about 1:00 you can see a concrete rockers sticking up out of the water. that concrete bunker used to be 500 feet west. used to be 500 feet west. you hurt me here with tongue-in-cheek with stephen stills who want that something is happening here. but it is exact ways that clear. my hope is that others will see that, too. >> thank you him so much. it will cause senator gillibrand. we are so happy senator whitehouse just opened the door and were just thrilled th
to represent the nation's second largest state in the u.s. senate. kay came to washington ready to work. she established herself early on as a leader on transportation and nasa and as a fighter for lower taxes and smaller, smarter government. kay won a claim as an advocate for science and competitiveness, helped secure bipartisan support for the landmark america competes act, and she became known throughout the state for the close attention she paid to constituents. shortly after her election to the senate, kay began a tradition imitated by many others since of holding weekly constituent meetings over coffee whenever the senate's in session. the groups usually ranged in size from 100-150, and at any given coffee, you might come across families in bermuda shorts, bankers in pinstripes or college football players. over the years, kay has hosted about 50,000 people in her office through these coffees, but her attention to constituent service goes well beyond that. back home, she is one of the few politicians in texas who has actually visited all 254 counties, some of which are home to more catt
this year, when the state of florida sued the u.s. government for court determination of the preclearance under the voting rights act of 1965, preclearance of five counties, for discrimination, and further, sued the u.s. government by questioning the constitutionality of the 1965 voting rights act. in the discovery for that case, the testimony was taken of this former general counsel of the florida republican party. and what i would like you to know is this key individual who, with your permission, with the committee's permission i'd like to insert those documents in the record -- that his testimony, given in april, mr. mitchell said, and it's in the sworn testimony, that he was asked to draft the original version of the legislation that became the law. he was asked to drafted by republican party leaders, specifically after consultations with andy palmer, then the executive director of the florida gop, frank, head of the gop state house campaigns, and joel springer, head of the state senate, republican campaigns. and in early talks with executive director of the florida gop. and with this
a second bite at the apple for bob. >> thank you. we are all familiar with the statistics. the u.s. spends on health care than any other developed country. we hear that continuously. i was surprised to hear at a recent conference exactly the reverse is true when it comes to social support spending for lower income groups. for seniors and people with disabilities. which raises the question in my mind, would it be better for us to try to rebalance our spending in the direction that allow people to stay in their homes, functioning well instead of institutionalizing them. which is very expensive. >> we need to figure out how to spend more sensibly and efficiently in health care no matter what else happens. because it makes no sense. we know that it can be done in a smarter way. the question about how and how much support structures that i will say that most, not all, most of the people who are now institutionalized and long-term care and other settings, they are there because they have multiple dependencies that are difficult to treat. most of the people were who are able to be treated within
. there are variables that will affect that that we cannot control. with the u.s. does and the international financial institutions do is going to matter. morsi cares about with the international community to cares about him. they are sensitive to that because they need outside support to get their economy back on track so there is a point of leverage. if we can use that i might be more optimistic. but in terms of a long-term goal is, it is islam for a reason and they're going to become liberals. all this talk about post islam is unrealistic because we are talking about deeply religious conservative societies where large majorities maybe they don't vote on the basis of sharia but they are sympathetic to public life and they can empower those elements of society to would push them further to the right and that isn't just egypt we see that in other countries where the democracy doesn't always have a moderating effect and they don't have a more islamic egypt and this could be somewhat liberal if not the liberal. >> thank you very much. thank you. this is a fascinating discussion and i appreciate your won

addresses the nation, wolf. >> it looks like this may be the worst mass killing at a school in u.s. history, based on the information i'm getting over here. columbine high school, littleton, colorado, back in 1999, dylan klebold and eric harris killed 12 fellow students and one teach brother before committing suicide in the school library. in this case, john king reporting close to 30, we believe, are now dead. and 18 to 20 of them children, if those numbers hold up. this looks like it could be the worst mass killing in american history, something no one anticipated would be happening at any point, but listen to the white house press secretary jay carney speak about this, just a little while ago. >> the president was notified by his homeland security adviser, john brennan, of the shooting in newtown, connecticut, at a school. the president is receiving regular updates as more information becomes available about this incident. and as the day proceeds, if we get more information and as we get more information, we'll certainly provide it to you. i do not have anything to confirm for you at thi

, virginia. it is still the worst single act of gun violence in u.s. history. an the only school shooting that involved more fatalities than today. for so many of us today was a reminder of one day on april 20, 1999, when the now infamous names kle became part f the american dialogue. we suffered great heartache as the two students opened fire and killed 12 other students about teacher and wounded 20 others before killing themselves at columbine high school. looking further back to history now, really the first time the nation dealt with this kind of violence on a campus. august 1, 1966, austin, texas. a university of texas student killed 16 people and wounded 32 others in and around campu campus. again today, now the second worst single day of violence at school. virginia tech massacre in 2007 remains atop that horrible list. jon, this is not unique to our nation. you will remember you and i were on there, reporting in july of 2011, in norway, that gunman who shot and killed at least 85 people at a youth camp there. back to you. >> jon: similar events in russia as well. what would make s

[overlapping dialogue] >> reporter: yes? >> do you know -- did any of ryan's friends -- have they ever met adam? >> reporter: not the ones that i spoke. to they knew he had a brother and that is about the extent of their knowledge. they also had very brief conversations with him today because,

's either 26 or 27 fatal shooting victims, the worst school shooting in recent u.s. history. the other question is whether it was just one person or two. the best information as of this hour is that it's just one. there was a second person taken in to custody for questioning but we have seen no indication that the person was involved in the shooting. just happened to be there coincidentally and the authorities were questioning that person to see what additional information that he could provide about the shooting. what the movements were of ryan lanza before the shooting, we don't know precisely when we acquired the guns. i'm sure we'll know that shortly but that's the detail to work out now. >> all right. justice correspondent pete williams there for us in d.c. do want to ask you just a couple of questions. what's happening at that house in hoboken, new jersey, right now? what can you tell us? >> any address that he's been connected with, police are searching. this is a standard thing to do in one of these situations. as soon as you find out the identity of the person, you immediately
. there is a lot of confusion about the shooter. what can we report? >> what we're being told now by u.s. officials is that the shooter is 20-year-old adam lanza. there was confusion earlier because he may have been carrying his elder brother, ryan lanza's i.d., his elder brother is 24. he's in custody. he's helping the f.b.i. with their questions, apparently being very cooperative. not a suspect in any way. but the shooter, we're told, this 20-year-old adam lanza. according to rick leventhal, who has been leading much of the reporting today on this, adam lanza woke thumb morning at his mother's home, shot her in the face and then came to this school. imagine the scene right now in sandy hook elementary. though the bodies of the children, many of them still there, we are told, and the difficulties are caught in identifying it, the only way because these kids obviously don't carry i.d., is for the parents to actually identify the bodies themselves. governor malloy talked about that difficult process earlier today. listen. >> our police personnel and others are doing the utmost to clear th
20th on the benghazi killing of the four americans including the u.s. ambassador, state department report about to released on what exact hi happened. she obviously can't do that. they've announced she can't appear p appear. she's sending two deputies. >> that's the brain rest. recovering from a concussion would not -- that would not be on the agenda. >> assume it's a mile concussion. she's at home, not in the hospital. they determined she had a concussion. brain rest is very important. but how long? how long should somebody avoid any mental real strenuous activity? >> what you want to do is trial somebody. so you might -- my guess is what has happened she continued to have symptoms after this, maybe headache, maybe blurriness of vision, it did not clear as quickly as they would have liked. they determined it was a concussion. you slowly reintroduce activity, allow someone to start reading, engaging in exercise, and seeing if any of the symptoms come back. if they come back, you're back on rest again. so it can be back and forth for a little bit. my guess is a week. that's typicall

of the worst shootings in u.s. history. thirty-two people dead at virginia tech, now we are being told that the number is 26 victims plus the shooter, and makes 27. at the sandy hook elementary school. in connection with this case. preliminary numbers as we continue to await official confirmation from those who are on the scene. you can understand why they don't want to give too many details at this time. i'm sure there are a lot of families going through a lot right now and trying to figure out whether their child is among the dead. bill daley is back with me. the fbi is now assisting the local on enforcement with this for the white house. what did you pick up on a? >> as much as we'd all like to get more information with details, i think the way they approach this is not to be too much ahead of the curve. to notify the next of kin, understand what is happening before they say anything. from our standpoint, we are wondering what else is going on. it is quite inspiring that within a few hours, but they move very quickly on a number of different fronts. they're probably getting subpoena
